UConn Engineering Hosts Science Bowl

science2On Saturday, March 9th, more than 500 students and coaches from across the Northeast region competed in the Northeast Regional High School Science Bowl at the UConn campus. A total of 48 teams representing 36 schools matched wits in a Jeopardy!-style quiz bowl covering a dizzying array of scientific minutia along with a model fuel cell car race.

The event was hosted by UConn Engineering for the eighth consecutive year, and 140 undergraduate engineering students contributed their time to make the event a resounding success.

Teams from across the region, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island competed in an expanded, super-regional event that concluded with one winner each selected to represent the Northern New England region and the Southern New England region. 

The winning teams were Lexington High School Team A in Massachusetts, and Connecticut’s own Glastonbury High School Team A.  Both will proceed to the National Science Bowl® in Washington, DC in April.
